    FLASHBACK: That Time Omarosa Was Fired from the Clinton White House Omarosa Manigault Newman is no stranger to failing in The White House. She became well known by television viewers of NBC’s hit show “The Apprentice” with Donald Trump. Now, after being let go for personal issues, she’s using that closeness to President Trump to make millions by calling her former boss a racist and a liar. She made the situation worse by illegally recording herself insecure parts of the White House. (RELATED: Omarosa Could be in Legal Trouble Over Secret White House Recordings). But this isn’t Omarosa’s first series...

    Democrats are embracing Michael Avenatti’s call for the party to get more aggressive in the Trump era and hit back harder than the GOP when responding to attacks. Avenatti, the Stormy Daniels attorney now considering a White House run, said at an event in Iowa on Friday that “when they go low, I say hit back harder.” It was a nod to former first lady Michelle Obama’s “when they go low, we go high” mantra — a more hopeful, optimistic slogan that an increasing number of Democrats say belongs in the trash can for the time being. Avenatti, said former...

    CNN Politics ^ | August 13, 2018 | Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large
    Michael Avenatti was in Iowa this weekend. Because he is thinking, actively, about running for president. Of the United States. Which is something we have to take seriously. Because Donald Trump is president. Or something. The logic goes like this: Trump was a businessman who had never run for office before but was famous for being on TV. Avenatti, who, in case you haven't watched cable TV in the past few months (shame!) is porn star Stormy Daniels' lawyer, has also never run for political office before and is famous for being on TV. Avenatti himself is drawing comparisons between...

    Here is radical Leftist Democrat Candidate Rashida Tlaib, a Muslim, running for Congress in Michigan on CNN today where she advocated for abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). When pressed on whether she wants America to have Border Security – she would NOT say she does. Folks, THIS is today’s Democrat. This is the Democrat Party now. It’s not the Party of FDR, JFK, Harry Truman anymore. It’s a collection of radicals whose policies are dangerous for America. . . .

    Democrats now view socialism more positively than capitalism, according to a new Gallup poll that comes as self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist politicians capture the party’s attention. The poll could add to a growing debate about the trajectory of the Democratic Party, which has seen increased energy around socialist movements and more candidates willing to step out on that economic platform, according to Frank Newport of Gallup: “Socialist Bernie Sanders competitively challenged Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, and more recently, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a candidate with similar policy views and a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, won...

    When delivered by Ronald Reagan, the question “Where do we get such men?” used to be the ultimate contemplation about the people who make this country great. Not anymore. Today, when we look at the delusion and deceit surrounding at least five Democrat members of the U.S. Senate, the question now becomes “Is this the best we have?” Let’s look at a few. When Cory Booker moved to Newark, New Jersey, he had it all: multiple degrees from Stanford, a Rhodes scholarship, a winning smile and a willingness to lie his keister off about a central feature of his earlier...

    Rep. Grace Meng is sponsoring a resolution that would extend the right to vote to U.S. citizens 16 years of age or older. The New York Democrat’s resolution, introduced earlier this month, would repeal the 26th Amendment of the Constitution, which currently states the right to vote for citizens who are 18 years of age or older "shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State." If the resolution is passed, the amendment would instead say the right to vote for citizens who are 16 years of age or older "shall not be denied or...

    The deracinated Democrats, still unable to accept their loss in the 2016 presidential election, have pinned their hopes on the iron laws of "history" and its noble arc to tell themselves that, since the party in power usually (but not always!) loses congressional seats in an off-year national election, there's a mighty "Blue Wave" coming this fall that will sweep the GOP from power in the House and tee up articles of impeachment against president Trump, because waaaahhhhhh.Then again, maybe not: For all the talk of a blue wave sweeping Democrats back into the House majority this fall, their...

    One of the nation's most powerful labor unions is rallying supporters to oppose Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's nominee to replace Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. On Friday, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) began circulating a petition online for its allies to send to their home state lawmakers. The union letter calls Kavanaugh a "narrow-minded extremist" and accuses the D.C. Circuit Court judge of undermining workers' rights and opposing abortion. "Kavanaugh is a narrow-minded extremist who will chip away at our rights in the workplace, the doctor's office and the ballot box," the letter says. "If Kavanaugh is confirmed he...

    The National Archives is doubling down on its refusal to respond to Democratic' requests for documents from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's White House tenure. Archivist David Ferriero wrote in a letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, that it is the agency's policy to only respond to requests from a committee chairman, who are all Republicans. "Accordingly, I am not in a position to change our understanding of the law or our practice in this particular instance," Ferriero said. Feinstein sent a letter to Ferriero last week asking him to reconsider the...

    Evangelist Alveda King: Oh, Omarosa WASHINGTON - In light of former White House employee Omarosa's new book that accuses President Trump of being out of control of his staff, unstable and dysfunctional - and an array of other allegations, evangelist Alveda King released this statement Monday morning: I've been praying hard about the Omarosa situation. I and a colleague had an opportunity to sit down with her at the White House a few months ago. I also had a few moments to chat with her on the President's Tour of the African American Museum, and had a photo with her...

    The open extremists operating in the Democratic Party's midst. It turns out the man arrested for running a Muslim terrorist training compound in rural New Mexico is the son of an influential Democrat-connected jihadist imam who was close to the Blind Sheikh who orchestrated the bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993 that left six people dead. Siraj Ibn Wahhaj Jr., who is 39 or 40, of Clayton County, Ga., was arrested after authorities found 11 hungry, filthy children living in squalid conditions in a remote part of New Mexico. Wahhaj, who has been charged with felony child abuse,...

    I know it’s racist to call LeBron James dumb, but what about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? The New York Democratic congressional candidate got at least some real questions during an interview this week on CNN. If weren’t for Ocasio-Cortez being an attractive minority, the rest of the media would be calling her the next Sarah Palin. Democrats, if they’re ethnic and look good on TV, typically get one question from the press: “Are you running for president?” It’s the sole reason Sens. Kamala Harris of California and Cory Booker of New Jersey are considered “top contenders” for the 2020 Democratic nomination. Cuomo...

    In the event you haven’t seen this yet I highly recommend Caitlin Flanagan’s article in The Atlantic, an otherwise deplorable publication: Why the Left Is So Afraid of Jordan Peterson. A tease: These are people who aren’t looking for an ideology; they are looking for ideas. And many of them are getting much better at discerning the good from the bad. The Democratic Party reviles them at its peril; the Republican Party takes them for granted in folly. If you’re “looking for ideas” the Left’s got nuthin’ to offer these days. Posted from: MOTUS A.D.

    Democratic billionaire donor Tom Steyer said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is wrong for saying his push to impeach President Trump is helping Republicans. Steyer pushed back against Pelosi’s claim during an interview with BuzzFeed News that aired Sunday night, calling Trump “reckless and dangerous and lawless.” “This is a historic time,” Steyer said. “If you step back for one second and think about this president, the most corrupt president in American history, somebody who is breaking the law on a daily basis.” Pelosi warned Democrats earlier this year against pursuing impeachment efforts against Trump, saying it could hurt...

    Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) on Sunday denied allegations that he had abused an ex-girlfriend — allegations which surfaced after the woman’s son posted about the alleged incident on Facebook. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported that Austin Aslim Monahan on Saturday night posted to Facebook that he watched a video in which Ellison dragged his mother, Karen, off of a bed and shouted profanities at her. The post quickly went viral.

    The Real Reasons for Chicago's Deadly Crime Wave Jack Dunphy It is an accepted but lamented fact of life among police officers that in order to rise on the promotional ladder, one must endorse the political fashions currently in favor among the city’s politicians. And the higher one ascends on that ladder, the more convincingly one must do so. As a consequence, reflecting the governing principles of almost any city you can name, most police chiefs are liberals, or at least pretend to be with a passing level of feigned sincerity. As a result of this, the upper levels of...
